You will need to contact the lender directly to request a mortgage modification. They will provide you with a specific forms that you will need to complete.

The first thing to be aware of is that a lender is not going to modify a fully performing loan. You will typically need to be at least 90 days behind before they will discuss modification. They will only modify to mitigate their risk . As long as you are paying or near up to date, they have no incentive to modify

I did the modification forms for the HAMP program. I keep getting the run around with them. They told me they need a court permission to do the modification. Which is why I was confused. Thanks, K

Is your chapter 7 bankruptcy still open? If so you will need to wait until you receive your discharge to complete the modification
